Donegal County Council imposing water restrictions

Water has been returned to a number of areas this morning following the council's overnight restriction in action being taken to address what is being described as a summer drought.

Lake and resevoir levels are said to be extremely low - last night supply was switched off at Lough Mourne, Frosses Mountcharles, Ballymagroarty and Greencastle.

The council says the restrictions will continue until such time as water levels return to normal levels
